The FijiFirst Government has chosen the path of fairness, justice and equal opportunities, says Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama.

The FijiFirst movement leader said yesterday better civil service would be ensured now.

He was addressing more than thousand people at the movement’s west interfaith thanksgiving in Churchill Park, Lautoka.

“The days of pandering to special interest groups, elites and certain areas of the country are over. Now, the days of meeting the needs of ordinary people and their families will continue and with renewed fervor,” he said.

Mr Bainimarama said the next phase of their reforms would build upon what had already started, including an overhaul of the civil service to make it professional and more efficient.

“We went to the nation with that message of service, of delivering what people need to improve their lives. And, I intend- in the new Parliament- to redouble our efforts to provide service to every Fijian in every part of the country.”

He said that they had a vision of a prosperous, modern and inclusive Fiji which they intended to achieve. Mr Bainimarama said making Fiji a great nation was a future “we owe our young people and a future we owe ourselves.”

Accompanied by rounds of applauses and cheers, Mr Bainimarama reiterated that he was here as Prime Minister for everyone. “I passionately believe in one nation, one Fiji and that everyone has a place in it, whoever you are, wherever you come from and whoever you voted for.”

“An overwhelming majority  of us have turned our backs on the politics of division and embraced a united future. We have chosen the path of fairness and justice. The path of equal opportunity.

“To the minority who are still caught in the past, I say to you- please come and let’s all move forward together- we must have an inclusive Fiji in which no one is left behind.

He made special mention of his wife Mary who was by his side daily as he worked to achieve his goal set for Fiji.

The role Republic of Fiji Military Forces played in taking Fiji forward also received a special mention by the PM.
